Is it possible to get more photos of these things? Especially of the packaging.
here you go..
also wanted to mention that i was able to get these at $9.99 each by using the $10 off target coupon and the $5 McD's coupon. you'd have to do separate transactions to take advantage but it sure beats paying $24 a piece. I suppose you could use the coupons on the universe packs as well..
I have read on the boards that more people who would buy the battle packs would prefer to buy the Battle Over Mission City with the flame Megatron over the Freeway Brawl with the repainted Optimus Prime. I went to a Target today and saw 5 Battle Over Mission City boxes and 1 Freeway Brawl. This is more evidence that collectors (or expressive Internet users) represent a very small portion of the market. More people bought the pack with Optimus Prime than the one with Megatron, which also corresponds to the sales of the original Voyager molds. For those who are interested in comparing the Freeway Brawl Oprimus Prime with the original mass release voyager, here is a very detailed picture showing them side by side. Since it is very large, you will have to click on the link to download the full image:
As you can see, there are more blue plastic and paint details. The biggest difference is the gray color plastic used. In the Freeway Brawl version, the gray is more brownish. Even the face is more detailed. I would say that this is the true Premium Series Voyager Optimus Prime (as opposed to the Robo-vision and Battle damaged versions).
Come to think of it, that actually looks similar in tint to the way Prime's CG model looked in the movie, towards the end where he does a pose and the battle mask covers his mouth.
